By Wainwright Jeffers - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Albany Police are investigating a possible murder.

Just before seven o'clock Friday night, family members found a woman dead inside her apartment in East Albany.

The victim is 45-year-old Yolanda Roundtree.

Her body was found in Wild Pines Apartment number 403 on Sands Drive near Albany State.

Relatives came to check on Roundtree and found her dead; Albany Police refuse to say anything about how she may have died. Neighbors are shocked.

"We're looking into the cause of death and any potential suspects right now the Albany police department is working to gather any necessary evidence." said Christopher Cohilas, Dougherty Chief Asst. District Attorney.

"It's very surprising to me it hurt in my spirit to find out something like this evening," said Rev. Kawaski Lucas, Neighbor.

A coroner with the GBI was called to the scene to help with the investigation.
